The Daybreakers star has already tried his hand at directing for the stage and writing novels while maintaining a successful acting career in Hollywood, but now it appears he is eyeing up a move to the comic industry.
Bleeding Cool quoted Hawke as saying: "If I could work with a graphic artist, and I’m working on trying to do that, that would be fun. I have the idea in my noodle but I’m not sharing it.
"I plan on meeting with the publishers at Vertigo. I love that stuff. I have a whole other part of my brain that does that."
Vertigo is an imprint of DC Comics, which is known for releasing books that contain adult themes and deal with controversial subjects.
